This cute and quirky cottage overlooks the ancient holy well of St. James on the Wild Atlantic Way in the tiny village of Ardfield. The cottage, part of a barn conversion, is small but charming with lots of old wood, vintage stuff and charming hosts! Ardfield is just 4 rambling miles from Clonakilty, which has loads of restaurants and pubs with live music. It's perfect for a couple or a family with small children (not 4 adults!)

The space
The cottage is part of a barn conversion along with Seascape Cottage. Holy Well Cottage overlooks the Holy Well of St. James, an natural spring that once was the main water supply for Ardfield Village. The compact cottage consists of sleeping quarters downstairs, with a small double bed which has an adjoining shower room and bunk room. The bunks are compact, so are not suitable for BIG adults!

Where you’ll be

Ardfield, Cork, Ireland

Ardfield, just over 4 miles from Clonakilty, is remote and beautiful, but lively too with it's own festival that happens in the first week of August. Sitting out on a peninsula in the Atlantic Ocean, with the Galley Head lighthouse at it's tip.

Ardfield is surrounded by beautiful beaches - big and small - great for surfing, swimming, sand castle building or just a beautiful walk. There's lots of wildlife and heritage about too. There are salt water marshes ideal for bird watching, along with rugged cliffs for spotting costal birds.

There are lovely heritage seaside towns to visit, like Kinsale, Clonakilty, Glendore and Baltimore. There are heritage centres in Kinsale, Bandon, Clonakilty and Skibbereen. For those with an interest in Irish history there is lots to learn about the Famine in West Cork, and to find out about Michael Collins, who was born just down the road in Woodfield and worked and lived in Clonakilty.

In Ardfield there is a lovely new playground with lots of fantastic climbing frames, swings and a zip wire. O'Sullivan's Mountain House pub is lively and in the summer does coffees and toasted specials during the day (toasted specials are an Irish delicacy - a toasted sandwich with ham, cheese, onion and tomato).

Holy Well Cottage is a great option for people attending weddings at Dunmore House Hotel. And for those of you not attending a wedding there, it's worth for the food and the view! It is also a good option for those attending weddings at Inchydoney Island Lodge and Spa.

During your stay

As much or are as little as you like! Rosie plays in the great traditional music sessions in O'Donovan's Hotel in Clonakilty which is a must see. She may give you a bodhran lesson if you ask nicely, or a 'spin' down to 'Clon' so you can enjoy a pint of stout. Michael has lots of stories to tell, and likes to sit around chatting over an Irish Coffee.
